That icky and sticky Power Pop honey you’ve been craving will be DRIPPING from the ceiling of Cole’s Bar this Saturday night August 16th! Legendary Southern power pop monsters Lover!, and Talbot Adams will be joining Chicago’s MAMA to perform their sexiest hits for FREE – wet-knaps not included!

It might be a little dirty, and it might be a little sweet, and maybe they put the moves on too fast (admit it you LOVED IT) – but you definitely won’t regret getting your filthy mind stuck on the punk rhythms, come-hither vocals, and late-night anthems of Tennessee’s Lover! Bandleader Rich Crook is a professional at crafting power pop and punk rock gold -- he’s bulldozed minds with Jay Reatard in The Reatards and Lost Sounds, glammed it up in the Knaughty Knights, and now he takes the art of power pop even further with Lover!

If you like your power pop unforgettable like a midnight skinny dip, then the rich voice of Talbot Adams and his tough-as-sugar songs will keep you rock hard until the crack of dawn. The Mississippian’s blend of introspective songcraft and hard-partying rock and roll is enough to make you believe in something again – without having to take your hand off that sweet young thangs’s swaying backside.

Combining power pop wizardry and unrelenting rock and roll abandon, MAMA breaks all the rules with their explosive sound and fearless playing. MAMA’s howling gutter vocals, girlfriend-stealing rhythm section, and unhinged dual guitar playing will fondle your private spots until you are a quivering mass of goo begging to go deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper…and deeper….

Check out Lover!'s "Losing My Mind" right here and don't forget to get to the show at Cole's early!
